Why Eintracht Frankfurt is a good bet versus Napoli
The home team has been playing well. Although Frankfurt does show a loss in the last 5, it came versus Cologne and it happened in a road match.
The draw versus Bayern in Munich happened on Jan. 28. One thing to note is that all three home wins came on Frankfurt’s pitch. So the Bundesliga squad has an edge in this.

Why Napoli is a good bet versus Eintracht Frankfurt

Final Betting Analysis: Napoli at Eintracht Frankfurt
Napoli can win the Champions League. We can’t say the same for Frankfurt. Although Eintracht is a solid club, and they do have home pitch in this, the German Bundesliga team hasn’t played great soccer.
Yes, Frankfurt shows 3 wins. But Cologne didn’t just beat the home time in this. Cologne dusted Frankfurt 3-0.
The loss is a sign Frankfurt may not be ready to battle a solid club like Napoli. The Napoleons have a 62 points to 47 points lead over Inter on the Serie A standings. That tells us Napoli is for real.
Frankfurt could fight hard, though. So since this is on the Bundesliga’s squad’s grass, Frankfurt projects to lose by a single goal and that’s probably it. Napoli’s goal scores in regulation.
Champions League Pick: Napoli +114
